Learn me on Sport Courts

Recommended Posts

Did a search but didn’t see a previous thread.

Thinking about putting a Pickleball court with basketball goal on one end in the backyard. Anyone install a Sport Court? How long does it take? Any ideas on ball park prices? Any good recommendations in Dallas?

Thanks.

I have never installed one, but we had them when I was growing up.  They are awesome.  The one recommendation I would make is to never ever play on it while it is wet.  It becomes very slippery and when you slide on it, it will make a waffle shaped burn on you.  We sued to call it getting "Aunt Jemimad".

Which gets hotter during the summer? Figure that might have a big impact on the concrete v. sports court decision.

They can be whatever size you want. Ours is getting started next week and it’s kind of trapezoid shape due to the shape of the space in the yard. Will let y’all know how the process goes

This is what I wound up figuring out. They used compacted sand as the sub layer. I pushed for gravel but they were unable to get it and showed up with sand so I rolled with it. They used rebar. Came out the next day for relief cuts.

Looks really nice. Did y’all paint a key on it? Is that a 72” backboard?

I went with the 60". The paint project took me most of August of 2018. (and yes, I fucked it up slightly, I measured the half circle from the backboard instead of the center of the hoop)
